Milliner Stephen Jones has been creating sharp and stylish hats for men and women for more than 30 years. He burst on to the London fashion scene during its explosion of street style in the late seventies. By 1980, he had opened his first millinery salon in London’s Covent Garden which soon became a place of pilgrimage and patronage, as everyone from Boy George to Princess Diana sported his designs.
In addition to Princess Diana, his famous client lists includes everyone from Mick Jagger to Rihanna. Described as the greatest millinery collaborator of his generation, Stephen has worked with fashion designers as divers as John Galliano at Dior and the legendary Vivienne Westwood. He curated the immensely popular 2009 exhibition at London’s V&A Museum: ‘Hats, an Anthology by Stephen Jones’ and his hats are collected by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Louvre in Paris.
Now, as ever, at the forefront of fashion, his beguiling hats routinely grace the most celebrated magazine covers and enliven window displays of the world’s most stylish shops.
